Don’t keep results a secret, report it to university officials to perform contact tracing. There is nothing to be ashamed of having gotten COVID-19; do use the experience to help friends and family prevent the same thing happening to them.

If you know someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 offer words of support and encouragement and help provide support like safely taking them groceries or prepared food. 

What To Do
On Campus

Face coverings are required in all University buildings and outside whenever physically distancing from others is not possible. 

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially when you have been in high touch areas. Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands. If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

Individuals need to maintain at least 6 feet of separation from others when possible both on and off campus. Please follow campus signage for traffic flows in buildings and throughout campus.

Please isolate yourself from others and reach out to the Longest Student Health Center to schedule testing or report a positive test for further instructions. Rest, stay hydrated, and monitor your symptoms.

Keep your spaces clean and sanitized. Classrooms will be cleaned on an enhanced schedule throughout the day.

Practice self-care by exercising, eating healthy, talking to my friends & family. As part of the bulldog family we take care of each other. Know that there are resources on campus to help through this unprecedented time.
